Couple's lawsuit claims failure in standards of care

Most surgeries and out-patient procedures are performed only after the patient has been placed under general anesthesia and is unconscious. There are some exceptions to this, such as C-sections, which are quite often performed while a pregnant woman is still awake. Mothers in New Jersey who have undergone a C-section while awake may recount that they were still under the effects of anesthesia for the pain. An out-of-state mother claims that she was fully awake for her C-section too, but that the standards of care for her anesthesia were not followed.

Foreign object left in patients can be from cellphone distraction

If asked "Where is your cellphone?" most people in New Jersey may point to various locations such as their pocket or hand, but it might be likely that it would be a nearby location. Smartphones have become a ubiquitous aspect of society, with most people using their phones for much more than just making phone calls or sending text messages to friends. Unfortunately, cell phones also wind up in the hands of those who should be focusing on other tasks. When surgeons find their smartphones more engaging than the task at hand, it may not be surprising to discover a foreign object left behind or that the entire procedure ended up being a surgery gone wrong

Victim's guardian wins medical malpractice claim for negligence

Nearly anyone who has visited a New Jersey hospital is likely familiar with the constant beeping of various monitoring systems for patients. From heart rates to oxygen levels, keeping a close eye on a patient's vitals helps ensure adequate and prompt care. When negligence includes these vitals being ignored, a tragedy can occur in a relatively short period of time.
